China - Country Fields - Cyber Security - Geo-Political ?s

Discussion created by Tucker Allen on Aug 13, 2019

Hi everyone,

This is a bit of out touchy subject in light of the recent happenings in Hong Kong. We've been approached by the Chinese Cyber Security team and they are performing an audit of our Country fields. We currently have values under our country drop-down for Macau, Taiwan, Hong Kong and China. China is attempting to force us to change the values to = Macau - China, Taiwan - China and Hong Kong - China. There are examples where other brands have been forced to make this change and issue a public apology to the country itself.

Has anyone else had experience with this geo-political issue? We are reviewing it internally with our legal teams and I just wanted to see what others' experiences were with this major issue.
